Affordable Rustic Apartment, Walk to Ferry and Town

Vinalhaven, ME, USA
  • Apartment1200 sqft
  • Bedrooms2

  • Bathrooms2
  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay3 nights

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2 adults

Rustic two-story 1850s farmhouse-style attached apartment converted from a former lobsterman's workshop. Wide plank (some squeaky) floors throughout, narrow steep stairway, ideal for those looking for authentic Maine island charm. Old-fashioned glider out front next to rhododendron and rose bush gets morning sun exposure. So quiet with the sound of rustling leaves and seagulls. One TempurPedic double bed and two comfy twin beds in separate room. Apartment is in great residential location near Historical Society up on the hill for easy walking to Main Street restaurants, shops, and ferry. Near water, but not on water, with limited Carvers Cove views from upstairs bedrooms. Good neighborhood for walking, great harbor views from nearby Blueberry Lane overlook. Walk to breathtaking Lane's Island Preserve or rent bikes and kayaks in town. This is not a good choice for people who are expecting a modern "fancy" place. There aren't electric outlets and switches on every wall in every room for instance, but there are plenty of lamps, books, games and the kitchen is well-stocked including lobster pot, coffee maker, and toaster. The owners might be in the connected house while you are here but are a quiet couple and there is no open access between spaces. You have your own entryway. We provide bedding and towels. No pets, please. There is wi-fi, reception best on first floor, but no landline phone or TV. AT&T has cell towers on the island and is the best choice for cell service. Maximum occupancy is two adults. Will also consider an infant or small child with parents. Note: rate shown and minimum three-night stay is for summer. We are open to nightly stays at lower rates for May and also mid-September thru October. Contact us.

About Caleb Mason

My wife and I own the apartment and attached house. We are quiet non-smokers not always on the island. We live and work in Portland, Maine. We just bought the house in June of 2015.

Caleb Mason purchased this Apartment in 2015

Why Caleb Mason chose Vinalhaven

Ideal for single travelers or couples looking for affordable stay, apartment is conveniently located to the ferry and Main street, so no car is needed. We provide sheets, blankets, pillows, one fan. An affordable way to get on the island and escape the rush of mainland living.

                                                                We were impressed with our communication with the owner. The place was beyond our expectations in both living necessities and decorating. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. Location was great. The only complaint I have is a smoke detector low battery alarm during the night.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thanks for letting me know about the alarm. Sorry about that I'll fix it now. Come again!

                                                                Simply charming

                                                                A perfect apartment for our stay on Vinalhaven. Situated within walking distance to all amenities, we were also pleasantly surprised to be a 20 minute walk from the local swimming hole. It is a bit of a walk from the ferry to the apartment with the last part being uphill, so arranging a ride to and from the dock would be ideal. Other than that you are set. Super comfortable bed with nice linens. The apartment is clean with a lot of unique character, just like the town of Vinalhaven. I highly recommend this place for a couple.

                                                                Just as advertised.

                                                                We were very happy with the place.

                                                                Our rental on Starr Street was comfiortable and economically decorated. There were many interesting pictures, games, puzzles and books to compensate for television or radio. There was wifi, but a landline would have helped us contact friends and family. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
